LONDON, October 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Sometimes the end comes unexpectedly, we cannot foresee when this might be, but we can be prepared. Afternote provides peace of mind by offering a private and secure online platform to store everything in life and death that matters the most to you.
If you have ever had someone close to you die, perhaps a sibling or a parent you'll know how hard it is to come to terms with them no longer being in your life. As well as dealing with this, you're facing some tough questions, such as 'What kind of funeral would they like? Do they want to be buried or cremated?' Plus trying to arrange practical things such as life insurance and pension arrangements can be really difficult.
Afternote allows you to store all your important information about your life and your death. It is a free to use website, beautifully designed and easy to navigate through the different sections. Assign up to three trustees of your choice that can access your Afternote account after you have passed, and they will find the answers to all those important questions.
You can also leave messages for loved ones, which will be passed on and cherished to those who mean the most to you.
Afternote believes in living life to the full and putting time aside to reflect on it. Set up your own Bucket List. Where in the world do you want to visit? What do you want to see?! Write it down in your account and begin ticking it off!
The Timeline section offers an invaluable facility where you can upload special photographs, allowing you to remember those key life moments forever. It also allows loved ones a further insight into your life when you no longer can, let them enjoy looking through your life story and reminiscing.
Afternote wants to encourage people all over the world to think about both life and death, to be prepared and take the time just to look around. With such an innovative idea we aim to be the go-to place for everyone to securely store important information. Death should not be a taboo subject and life is for living, if you believe this too then Afternote is for you.
